Have tried playing both the CDs and the DVD thru the same speakers and there is most definitely a better sound with the Blue Ray player than my standard CD player. However, I'm really trying to find out if my Blue ray player is able to read or decode, if that's a better word, the full capacity of HDCD.
My big question is why are the dead relaasing in HDCD if players are almost non-existent from what I can discern. Maybe blue ray has that capacity, but I cannot verify this.

I was considering buying an Oppo just to play my GD collection, but then I noticed that my first DVD player from 1999 actually plays HDCDs. If you look on Craigslist or ebay, there are people selling older HDCD-capapble players for reasonable prices.

But why are they using that format..? I don't even understand why they release half of the stuff they put out.

Love the fact are releasing a load of great stuff w/ the technologies to restore them right now. But again reading your response makes me believe you, like I, don't have the answer about Blue Ray being a HDCD decoder. My DVD player is a couple of years old and it is an improvement over my CD player that is probably 10 years old. I'm going to try to go thru the Blue Ray player on the company site and will respond when I learn something new.
